Bio

I found out about CrossFit through rowing. Athletes from CrossFit were winning indoor rowing competitions and I decided to give CrossFit a try to see if it could improve my rowing. CrossFit has become a bigger part of my life, but I still try to squeeze in some rowing.

ATHLETE INFORMATION

How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I workout mostly at home, work, or a traditional gym

I record my workouts

Secretly (ha!) I still do some longer cardio workouts at the YMCA, but often mix them up with CrossFit type intervals.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

I regularly play recreational sports

Did gymnastics for a bit in high school, but nothing super competitive. Have also done some running in the past. Most recently have done sweep rowing and sculling.

My Experience With CrossFit

I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)

I have attended one or more specialty courses

My Work/Rest Schedule

I do multiple workouts in a day 2x a week

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

Rest when I need to.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

2-4 years

Started CrossFit in February 2013. Love the support from the CrossFit community at my home box, and other affiliates where I have visited.
